THQ Nordic have confirmed the console release of Wreckfest, scheduled for November 2018, has been delayed until early next year. Having spent several years in development on PC, Bugbear Games and THQ Nordic announced earlier this year that the vastly improved destruction derby style game would be making a debut on both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 console platform toward the end of 2019, however it appears the task of bringing this high octane title to the living rooms of players worldwide has proven more difficult than initially expected - with an initial release date of November 20th 2018 having been deferred to an as yet unconfirmed date in 2019. "Wreckfest for consoles will only be released as soon as we love playing it. After the fantastic release on PC, the benchmark for the console release is much higher. At this moment, the team needs more time to polish the multiplayer part, as well as the overall performance on the game to bring it up to par with the experience on PC. We are sorry for keeping fans waiting longer because of this. However, we already have compensation in the form of further vehicles, including a special crazy vehicle, in the works for consoles. " - says Roger Joswig, Senior Producer at THQ Nordic. No doubt disappointing to console players keen to make the most of this very entertaining title, it is nevertheless positive to hear that both Bugbear and THQ are keen to ensure the quality of any console release is at an appropriate level for a fully finished game (something often overlooked with many new racing releases...).
